World Lens lets you instantly translate printed words using your device's built-in video camera, in real time.
Here's the official announcement:
With Word Lens, we've seen the beginnings of what's possible when we harness the power of mobile devices to "see the world in your language."
By joining Google, we can incorporate Quest Visual's technology into Google Translate's broad language coverage and translation capabilities in the future.
As a thank you to everybody who supported us on our journey, we've made both the app and the language packs free to download for a limited time while we transition to Google.
We're looking forward to continuing our work at Google - stay tuned!
Word Lens was also featured in Apple's recent 'Powerful' ad.
You can download Word Lens from the App Store for free.
